OnePlus is known to have a punch hole on its phones to be at the top left. If the new renders are anything to go by, it means the OnePlus 10R will be the first OnePlus phone to feature a center punch-hole. The power button is on the right-hand side of the frame while the volume rocker is on the left side of the device.
At the rear of the OnePlus 10R, there is a vertically placed rectangular camera module that houses three camera sensors.
